frustrated and thinking about moving away from firefox. why not let us choose whether to update or not??

cookies deleting you have to search for each and everyone (why not sorted by installed date???) then one has to delete all the site cookies that are ok cause such a big effort to clear cookies!

no longer able to bank cause bank changed their cross site settings and firefox wont let me through...have to watch the status in bottom left corner and hope I can read it fast enough.

Would be nice if someone from Mozilla could build this into the browser, so users can easily change their Time Zone.

( Timezone Difference: The time zone of your browser is UTC while your request IP location timezone is different. )

Currently have privacy.resistFingerprinting on which is giving website the UTC time zone. How do I change this without disabling the setting.

Can I go into About:Config and add a new timezone?? that the Javascript request will find.

I initially had trouble because a website for school, called Wiley,com, or Wiley Plus, was having trouble. Specifically, i could most things and when I would attempt to open a homework assignment, Id get an error. According to my professor, it was a Firefox issue, and he was right, when I went to Google, which I hate, it worked just fine. Then slowly, there were more problems opening up my school website or my bitwarden extension would have issues. So today, I finally uninstalled, and reinstalled. Which, unfortunately, I have had to do with Firefox twice before. Frustrating, but I hate Google enough that I chalked it up. Then, after this most current reinstall, it completely screwed things up with my bitwarden extension and bitwarden themselves, because for some reason, Firefox is sending weird info that freaks websites out. Outside of the extensions, it often cant open sites, or sites tell me something is happening. I have Norton and have scanned my device repeatedly, and gone so far as to contact them and my computer is clean. What...is going on. I STILL haven't sorted out the Bitwarden fiasco and have had to contact their support, but honestly, the problem CAME from the firefox browser. I dont know how to fix this

I've been using Firefox for awhile but just in recent days I've noticed that logging in to selected websites takes much longer or fails. For example, it takes me 3 minutes to login to Fidelity. During the 3 minutes, I see the message "Performing TLS handshake..." being displayed in the lower left hand corner of my screen. I am running Windows 11 with the latest version of Firefox (109.0.1). This also happens when logging to United Health Care websites. The same problem does not occur with Microsoft Edge.

Any insight to this problem is appreciated. Thank you.

Hi, I've been trying to transfer from Chrome to Firefox but have been experiencing a graphical error with primarily the toolbar in Google Docs. The places where icons should be denoting what each button does are empty - I do not have any extensions, plugins, or themes installed that would be causing this. I did install the Dark Reader extension to see if it would show icons when using it, which it did not. It actually is not exclusive to the toolbar, as drop-down menus that would normally have icons do not either. I tested in both Microsoft Edge and Chrome and this issue does not arise on either.

While Docs has been the primary issue, it persists across all Google Drive apps (Sheets, Slides, Drawings, and more). My version of Firefox is up to date and I am on an HP laptop running Windows 10. If anyone is able to help diagnose the issue at hand or direct me to another support thread where this issue has been resolved, it would be highly appreciated. Thank you so much!

I love Firefox and have been using it for years. I hate Google Chrome, but I'm forced to use it once or twice a year. When I use Firefox and go to one of Google's apps, a lot of the text overlaps. I lowered my minimum text to 30% and although it's almost unreadable, I can see that the text still overlaps. This is something I've been living with for a long time. Today I tried the same Google.com pages using Google Chrome and everything looks fine. Why can't Firefox fix the overlapping text? If Google can do it, Firefox should be able to do it after all these years. The available add-ons do not work. Bob Brown

My keyboard regularly locks up using Firefox. I tracked the problem down to having upwards of 40 Firefox processes running in Task Manager. Disabling them or restarting Firefox only works for a few hours before the problem recurs.

Several people here recommend disabling "Use recommended performance settings," which should give me the option of selecting the max number of processes to be running.

However, when I disable the recommended performance setting, the hardware acceleration option appears, but not the process number selection. I'm finding no way to set the max number of processes.

I'm hoping for a work-around to that, or a different solution.

Thanks.

BTW, I also notice excessive processes running when I use Chrome. I'm concerned why this is happening on both my browsers.

5 hr. ago Dell Latitude, Windows 10. Firefox will not display formatting options (such as italics, bold, underline, delete, etc.) in gmail. The only way to display the options is by hovering the cursor over the blank space above the name of the person it's going to (or received mail, just to be able to delete it) until an option appears. Nothing is indicated, and I have to move the cursor until I find the desired option and then click on it. The same thing happens in Chrome. This is totally crazy-making (insofar as gmail worked perfectly until a short time ago) and I'd welcome your suggestions and input.

I can no longer log-in to sites that require Usersname and Password on my Mac. But I have no trouble using my iPhone to log-in using the ios Firefox and Firefox Focus. I tried clearing the history on my Mac and still no success. The error message I keep getting is "Could not process login". I know my username and password by heart and have had problem logging in before. Just recently in January 2023. I kept trying until I got locked-out. Please advise.
